Where Have You Been All My Life – Instant Chocolate Cake in a Mug?

Not much has to be said about this.  The title says it all.  This is perfect for a late night dessert craving that you really shouldn’t give into.  Ria and I made this together for breakfast (please don’t call child services!), primarily because I could not wait to try this recipe.  We were so excited that we dug in immediately and I almost forgot to take the “blog photo”.  Hence the partly eaten cake photo below :).  It was topped with chocolate chips for us chocolate fanatics and next time are going to add nuts, ice-cream and/or raspberries.

Pure Genius.
